They play that on the radio all the time here. Sounds really cheesy to me.
I think "Sail" is a better song by far.

This one I really like, but I really disliked the album overall.

I liked one of their songs that used to be in heavy Sirius XM airplay, but I have a feeling I'll hate them overall.

Every time I see there name I think it's "AOL Nation" which both dates me and shows how weak-minded and corporate driven I really am.

Looks like this year's Neon Trees.

I'm a big fan of the album. I think it's inventive and shows a lot of variation whilst offering irresistible pop hooks. I'll definitely be at this show.

I've seen Awolnation already (before hearing the entire album), and they seem to be a really nice group. The album isn't chock-full of fantastic songs. Only 3 songs of the entire album made it onto my ipod. I've seen my share of sleezy and/or rude bands and Awolnation is nowhere near that. They were really greatful for their audience and were a great live act. Just my 2 cents.

I think their set should be a lot of fun. Some of the songs are a little cheesy, but the energy is just right for Coachella.

Incubus isn't on the poster!! I completely overlooked this. I had a gut feeling they'd be on this year's lineup and am just now realizing they didn't make the cut. Very nice.

Shut up. Why would expect Incubus there in the 1st place?

Saw them a few years ago in LA when my friends band opened for them. Don't know if it was just an off night for them or if they have just evolved a better live performance since then but I thought they were just mediocre at best.

yeah i was hoping they'd be there too! i also thought that death cab and naked and the famous would be on there. since theyve been playing everywhere lately.

New album right? Or at least song. Thought they were going to be the Jimmy Eat World of this year, the random past their prime rock band.

it doesn't work like that. They're easily headliner worthy

You're easily retarded. Wouldn't make it past the third line.

Everybody knows who Incubus is, like them or hate them. Yes they're past their prime when they would be EASY headliners. So they'd easily be the 2nd or 3rd name, and if it was a slow year they'd be a headliner (hey, if jack johnson and the killers can headline, anyone can)

Everybody knows who Lauryn Hill is, and look where she ended up. You're an absolute fool if you think they would be headliners now.

Name a band that's at the same caliber as Incubus who has subbed at Coachella? If u think they're even big enough to do that.

I'm not sure Weezer ever hit the peak that Incubus accomplished. This thread is about Awolnation, Travelfan thanks for changing the subject.

Jesus Christ just admit you don't know what the fuck you are talking about and shut up. Weezer is a far more successful act than Incubus and far more relevant. How big do you think Incubus actually is?

Grace Jones sold out the Hollywood Bowl too and look where she was billed. It's not that hard. And if KROQ had a say, Cage the Elephant would be a Coachella headliner. Of course they are going to slobber on Incubus's knob. Nobody cares about Incubus and they would never be a headliner.

And when is the last time they were relevant ...2002?

Incubus and Weezer are both successful bands, neither is remarkably more successful than the other imo. Now lets shut up about both those bands and keep talking about how shitty AWOLNATION is...

I'm really looking forward to seeing these guys actually. I've checked out a few of their songs, and they aren't half bad. :)

I haven't seen them live yet, but I am going to make their set for sure. Their CD grew on me last summer. A bunch of their songs have a familiar sound. My favorite is Knights of Shame.

which also means they aren't half good. Don't you want to see a band that is ALL good?...I'm sure there will be something else worth doing that will be more significant than seeing these fucktards greece out a couple songs...for example, standing in line for a portapoty.

Probably won't cuz of the short set-times though
